Best and greatest variety, George Jeffery, Five-Mile House...

5 00 The committee on apples on professional list, in submitting their report, would say, that in making their awards on best ten, adapted to the northwest, they were governed by the following rules: Hardiness, productiveness, quality, and varieties for season, adopting the following list as a basis to work to: Red Astrachan, Duchess of Oldenburg, Haas, Utters, Plumb's Cider, Fameuse, Tolman Sweet, Walbridge, Golden Russet, and Willow Twig. On best five, adapted, upon the same rules; Red Astrachan. Duchess of Oldenburg, Fameuse, Tolman Sweet, and Golden Russet.

On the best five winter, it was found exceedingly difficult to determine the awards, as there were four or five different collections worthy of much merit. The exhibitors found it very difficult to arrange their fruit for proper display, for lack of room; the exhibits being so much greater than was anticipated.

DESCRIPTION.— The original tree stands in the village of Pewaukee; it is over thirty years old and is very thrifty. It is a seedling of the Duchess, fertilized by the Belmont. Every other year it bears very heavy crops and a light one the alternate seasons; is a fair grower, with rather close, pyramidal top; shoots, light brown; leaves, grayish green. Fruit, medium to large; nearly round like an orange; calyx and basin very shallow, regular, nearly without rib or wrinkle; skin, yellow, covered partially with vermillion and carmine stripes, very smooth and of a fine color; dots, small and few; flesh, white, juicy, subacid, quite mild; good for dessert and cooking; keeps well into mid-winter; stem, long; fruit hangs well on the tree; seeds, rather large, dark brown; core, medium.

The fruit and cions of this tree were exhibited five successive years at the State Fair, and receiving the first premium at each, it was declared entitled to the highest award of the Society on seedlings.

5 00 In the exhibition of fruits by amateurs we find a very large and fine display of apples, much better than anticipated on account of the late season. Exhibitors are entitled to much credit for their efforts in this department. J. M. Smith, Esq.,

of Green Bay, exhibited six varieties of excellent pears grown by him.
